Going through a spiritual awakening? Here are the steps, processes, and how to navigate.

The concept of a spiritual awakening is not easy to grasp. It can be frightening and transformational, especially if you’re already feeling lost or insecure. It is one of the most important and profound turning points in your life. Let us explore what an awakening truly is and how it can help you on your journey.

What is a spiritual awakening?

Spiritual awakening is a state of consciousness that transcends the mind and opens us to new possibilities. Awakening is a word that is used in many religions, but is most often associated with Psychology. The symptoms of this state of consciousness are a heightened appreciation for life’s positive aspects, a renewed sense of purpose and a deep sense of empathy for others.


Some people feel this awakening more than others, but it is possible for everyone to experience it at some point in their lives. Some psychologists believe that it is the beginning of a new stage of growth in a person’s life, leading to a greater sense of maturity and identity. It’s important to note that this awakening is not a “fix” for all of your problems. Rather, it’s a shift toward a more positive way of being, and a way of looking at life that can bring you a sense of peace and joy.

How does a spiritual awakening happen?

A spiritual awakening happens when we’re ready for it. As we grow and develop as human beings, we naturally begin to look inside ourselves and find answers to our questions. This is a process called self-discovery or self-realization. Some people are able to look inward more easily than others, and this can happen at any age, even in childhood. However, it’s more common for young people to hear about it. It’s not something that you can rush. Some people report that it happened very suddenly and it can happen gradually over a longer period of time.


The first step toward awakening is to notice what’s going on inside you. This is similar to therapy, only you are the one doing it. You can’t really do it with anyone else. You need to be in a quiet, solitary place where you won’t be disturbed. Next, you need to turn your attention inward. Start by asking yourself questions like “What’s going on inside me right now?” “What am I feeling?” “What do I want right now?” Be curious. Be open. And be honest. You don’t need to try to solve anything, but just notice what’s going on inside you.

A process of awakening

Let’s break awakening down into smaller, more manageable steps and processes. Once you start to notice these things happening inside yourself, you will begin to understand how you can use them to awaken.


Self-Discovery: This is simply getting in touch with your emotions and why you are doing certain things. Self-Discovery can come from therapy, friendships, activities or even journaling. It’s important to keep track of your feelings and thoughts to get a better understanding of yourself.


Empathy Exercise: This is a great way to boost your self-awareness and identify your feelings. It can also be used to identify and increase your self-confidence.


Self-Acceptance: Awareness can help you understand your past and accept your flaws as a person. It’s a crucial step toward self-love.


Self-Compassion: Self-acceptance is great, but it’s not enough. You have to have a healthy amount of self-compassion to be truly happy and healthy.

The benefits of a spiritual awakening

  • Faith-filled - Awakening is often correlated with a spiritual awakening. This is a sense of faith that something bigger than you is guiding your life.
  • New perspective - The most obvious benefit of a spiritual awakening is that it brings you a new perspective. You are now able to see things from a wider perspective, making you more empathetic and understanding.
  • Better relationships - Relationships are often one of the top benefits of a spiritual awakening. When you’re able to see people as more than just their appearance, it can strengthen your bonds with loved ones.
  • More empowered - Another result of a spiritual awakening is a feeling of empowerment. Not only are you able to take better control of your life, but you are more capable of helping others as well.


Are You Going Through A Spiritual Awakening?

3 Stages of Trauma: Why do we need an awakening?

Many people begin their self-discovery journey during their teens and twenties. During these years, teens experience a lot of change and can feel very insecure about their bodies, thoughts and feelings. Most people will go through this stage of development, and it’s normal. However, some people experience this stage of development much earlier in life, even in childhood.


If you’ve experienced trauma (stressful or painful experiences) in your past, this may be why you’re ready for an awakening. Although you may not remember what happened, the memories are still there and may lead you to look inside yourself during your self-discovery process. Trauma can happen in many ways. A car accident, a serious illness or abuse can all be traumatic experiences. The important thing is to identify the source of your trauma. If you can identify the source of your trauma, you can work toward healing the wounds.

Final Thoughts...

Spiritual awakening is an incredible experience that can change your life forever. It's not something you'll find by looking for it, but something you have to search for by looking inside yourself. The process of awakening is quite difficult and challenging. But doing it is far more rewarding than anything you could experience without doing it.

One factor that we must remind ourselves is that the Universe never gives us what we cannot handle. We may feel that we can't, but we definitely have every capability to do it. It may not be with ease and there may be a struggle but it's always achievable.


We do not need to move forward at a rapid/fast pace, every awakening is different, and progression goes as it was meant to, no matter if it seems like everything is slowly coming along. That is an illusion many face because we will meet others who say that everything happened so fast and it's a never-ending speeding roller coaster. However, it is not like that for some, at times it can be a slow in-depth process that takes many years. That is okay! There is no rule book that states a process should only take a specific amount of time, just go with the flow and ride the wave to ascension.


If you are ready to take the plunge, you will find that it's easier than you think. By following these steps, you will easily experience a spiritual awakening.
